    Raise your hand if you teach short stories! This Paperless bundle of popular short stories is a perfect way to dig into literature standards–each unit is presented in a scaffolded way that’s thorough, rigorous, eye-catching, and FUN!

    This Growing BUNDLE includes all of my Digital Short Story Notebooks so that you can teach whole units with ease. Plus, buying the bundle saves you 20%!

    Focusing on short stories commonly taught in the upper-middle and high school classrooms, these units provide practice in important literary analysis skills, including:

    • Characterization
    • Theme
    • Conflict
    • Symbolism
    • Foreshadowing
    • Motive

    Additionally, important reading strategies, including Predicting, Summarizing, and Close Reading are also utilized. And, the diversity of characters included in these short stories helps all students to feel included!

    I usually open the year with short stories and these units make it super easy to assign whole-class, in small groups, OR to individually differentiate as needed.  Plus, the units are self-contained, allowing me to teach additional short stories in between larger literature units. 

    These lessons are visually engaging, interactive, and fun, and get the best of your students.

    This resource is technology-driven for the 21st-century classroom and can be easily shared with your students using Google Apps or Microsoft One Drive…excellent for schools who are transitioning to 1:1 or for teachers trying to incorporate more technology in their classes.

    See what my buyers have to say:

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We start the year with short stories, and this has a good variety (and I think more are supposed to be added).  Sharing the links with students was seamless and they seem to really enjoy interacting this way with the interesting visuals and critical thinking questions.  Highly recommend! (Also, this is great for Distance Learning! )
